Joanna Lennox is a fine bred English lady.
She's pretty, intelligent, witty and...on the shelf. With an influential baron as her brother and a hefty dowry, she should have gentleman lining up at her door but instead she seems doomed to become a spinster. Then one night a handsome highland lord steals a kiss from her in a library which stirs her deepest desires. Desperate for a life and a love of her own, she turns to the darkly handsome, brooding, Scottish lord who lights a fire within her with his touch. But will his secrets and enemies tear them apart?
Brock Kincade knows better than to go around kissing English ladies in dark libraries.
Especially when a lady is the little sister of the man who will shortly be his brother-in-law. But Joanna is pure temptation, and he's been denied that innocent affection for far too long. He doesn't believe in love, but he believes in lust, and after that single kiss, he knows he wants her as his wife. He might not love her, but he'll care for her and fuel the passionate fire between them with pleasure. There's just one problem: He'll have to steal her away from her overprotective brother and his devilish band of friends, the League of Rogues.
It's a race to Greta Green for a hasty anvil marriage that will change their lives forever...

Joanna Lennox is a beautiful, intelligent, witty young woman she doesn’t understand what’s wrong with her no man will offer her marriage. She dreams of finding love and romance and when a sexy dark brooding Scottish highlander show up in her library she finds herself very curious about his kisses. Brock Kincaid is trying to find his sister and what happen but he runs into Ashton Lennox’s sister, his sister, Rosalind's soon to be sister-in-law. He knows better than to go around kissing English ladies in dark libraries, but he just can’t help himself. I love the first meeting, the sexual tension with an amazing first kiss that rocks Joanna and Brock’s worlds. The story just keep getting better as we journey with Joanna and Brock as they navigate through their feeling, Brock has vowed to never fall in love and Joanna has always wanted a husband who loves her. I voluntarily read and reviewed this amazing story by Lauren Smith.
"A perfect kiss?" Joanna Lennox knew there was no such thing. Of course at twenty years old, she was unkissed, uncourted and utterly alone. But that was about to change as a Scotsman came into her library and kissed her senseless! What? Oh yes, talk about a story grabbing hold in the first few pages!! Then, a broodingly handsome, dangerous Scot, Brock Kincade, who was the brother of her future sister in law, stepped into her life and changed everything! What could be better than a handsome Scot and one who asked her to marry him? But what about love? A delicious, sigh worthy story that I could not put down once I started. Other characters in the League made their appearances, of which Joanna's brother was a member. Prepared to be enchanted and even a little emotional as Joanna and Brock (yes one of my favorite names!) try to find their happy ever after!! Lori Dykes
